‘The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made’
Air New Zealand would like to welcome you to Middle-earth with what it calls: The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made.
A new video from Air New Zealand, the “official airline of Middle-earth,” heralds the upcoming release of the latest Hobbit movie with an elfin stewardess, an orc with an oxygen masks, and Elijah Wood, Peter Jackson and Richard Taylor as ordinary passengers.
In the video, two Hobbit super fans board an Air New Zealand flight and find that Wod, a.k.a. Frodo, is seated across the aisle. The surprise continues as an elfin stewardess opens the safety video in Middle-earth, that is, New Zealand.
The clip is a trip through the Tolkien universe: a giant helps Jackson put on his mask; a wizard astride an eagle explains the crash position; an elf presents a life jacket for children and/or hobbits. And Wood, in the Shire, concludes the clip with warm wishes.
“May your path always be guided by the light of the stars and may the future bestow upon you all the happiness and adventure our Middle Earth has to offer.”
